Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera ?

We are getting hoizpntal lines on all photos taken, but in video mode, it looks normal. Doesn't sound like lens to me?

Answers :

As I wrote before for one other camera type you have the same problem with different solution on this case. Contact Canon service, is the best solution.
\015\012"My camera is 2 years old. 6 months ago horizontal lines began appearing in all pictures" The problem is not the sensor as the first solution has been posted, the real problem is connected with the flat cable inside lenses that is broken. You cannot replace it, you can raplace intere zoom. The problem is frequently on this type of camera and direct connected with camera frequent use. The fixed and automatic diaphragm do not work bacause broken flet is broken and the sensor is receiving too mach light. Take the camera, switch it on then light with a flashlight the lens, you see a diaphragm movement or hear a click on the lens, if not the flat wire is broken (means microcut inside flat invisible without a magnifying glass). Most time same problem is present with no image on the screen because diaphragm is completelly closed.
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

When I try to take a picture, the LCD displays a lot of colorfull squiggly lines instead of the scene that I want to capture. When I turn it ON, the Zoom lens extends normally, then the colored lines appear with the following settings on the screen. Auto, 1M 178, ISO 400, ! plus a hand icon, AUTO, 4, F2.8. No matter which mode I choose, the same thing happens. Looking through the EVF shows the same thing. Note; I can view several good pictures that I took before the problem showed up. If I

The LCD on my DMC-TZ5 looks like someone ran the image through one of those turn-your-picture-into-a-cartoon filters. The problem is present in both record and review modes (and menus too), both for still pictures and video. It does not affect the actual pics/video once downloaded to the computer; it's just a problem with the LCD display. It developed this problem after I took it to a repair shop to fix a stuck lens shutter/cover thingy. Before I take it back and accuse them of screwing somet

My video camcorder picture is yellow. It looks like you have put a yellow ilter in front of the lens and the color is so intence that it cannot be filtered back to normal in adobe premiere for example. What has happened? Can a service ajust the RGB balance or is the CCD broken?

My canon power shot A95 has a black screen when in shooting mode, like the lens is totally blind, all the other functions look normal. Camera was OK until I installed by mistake ni-metal hydride batteries, but the problem continues after replacing with alcaline batteries.

Sounds to me like your CCD was damaged. The CCD is the "chip" or "brain" of your camera, so to speak. The only way to fix this is to have the CCD replaced. But first you should find out about the cost, which may be similar to buying a new camera. ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

White lines My camera now records whie lines across the image, like scan lines on a TV and is prone to overexpose. Recording on video mode is no problem so I assume the sensor is OK.

I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself.

I have a small white Flip-like video camera offered by Sharper Image. I believe it to be perhaps the first model of the 'U-video' line. This video camera was offered by the newer, taken over Sharper Image. I did not buy the little video camera at a Sharper Image store, but at a Stein Mart store. It cost me $40. I'm looking for the manual for it. I want to know how to reset the date so that the date is correct when I video record something. This is not the latest of the Sharper Image Flip-like
